SCB Group companies act as brokers only and no agency, partnership,
joint venture or employment relationship exists between clients or any other party and any
SCB Group companies. SCB Group companies are never
contract parties to transactions and have no control or discretion over
the trading positions or orders of clients. All principal, credit,
delivery and analysis decisions and responsibilities are borne
exclusively by contract parties.
Full terms and conditions of service are
available on demand. Clients are encouraged to request and retain SCB
Group companies full terms and conditions of service.
All SCB Group companies are
independently run and managed. The term "SCB Group" is a marketing
construction to denote a group of companies cooperating on promotion and
other similar goals. SCB Group companies do not and can not bind other
SCB Group companies. Where the term "SCB" is used in this website or in any communication the intention may be to reference "SCB Group companies" if the issue is a promotional reference or it may be to denote a specific "SCB Group company" if the reference or communication relates to any transaction being negotiated, contract terms or some other formal issue.
